Workshops may include best practices, e-business, security, web integration strategies, outsourcing, systems funding and integration, and Internet privacy, to name a few. In a past event, Gary Beach, publisher of CIO magazine, facilitated a member discussion about the state of IT today, the legacy albatross, knowledge management and cutting costs.
